Stopping the Other Guy

Fred Hiatt: "In this Romney-Obama matchup, the only motivation that surfaces clearly for voters is the desire to stop the other side -- the conviction that the opponent's agenda would be dangerous. If the pattern holds after the conventions, this may be what propels voters to the polls in November..."

"It is a blocking election. The candidates give us little sense of what they would actually do in office. Neither tries to rally Americans behind a positive vision and agenda for the next four years. The rationale instead is the frightening specter of an enemy win."
